Governor Daniels and the entire Indiana delegation believe that this has been a very productive trip. The commerce model is growing more global each day. This has had both positive and negative ramifications for the US economy. We can pretend its not happening and in the long run our citizens will suffer.

Valparaiso International Center Grand Opening


The Valparaiso International Center has quite a bit going on in the upcoming months!  The VIC will host a Grand Opening on September 19th from 10am-8pm.

The day will feature:

  • a world flavors culinary experience,
  • art opening with a variety of culturally based artwork,
  • Neighborlink Now: The House Is Complete


    We wanted to take a few minutes and thank the MANY volunteers who came out to paint this house in Valparaiso for a gentleman who needed us. We started around the end of July and finished up at the beginning of September. It was worked on mainly on Saturdays. However, we couldn't have completed it without the help of two of the recipients neighbors. They worked throughout the weeks that we weren't able to be there. All together there were around 30 people who helped with prep by scrapping the house and the actual painting of the house.
